The champ is definitely coming out the east. That was some of the worst basketball I've ever seen

Hard to believe there were actually 29 points scored in the 4th quarter. Felt more like 12.

then again 15 of the 29 points were on FTs

0-12 in the 4th on shots that would have given LAC the lead. And that doesn't count at least 2 shot clock violations down by 1.

The final 2 minute report may not be too kind to these refs.

And they also overturned 2 of their own calls on reviews.

Ayton won the game for the Suns. His interior defense and rebounding was critical and helped pulled a win out of a game where Booker and CP3 were both quite poor, which really shouldn't be possible in the WCF.

So the Clippers were so cool with their shot creation, they felt there was no need to play Rondo for a SINGLE MINUTE tonight?

They won 70 percent of their games out of the West. They’re not some 6 seed that caught fire and breaks.
They’re a very good team but they’ve also drawn three teams in a row without one of their two best players: AD, Jamal Murray and now Kawhi. If AD stays healthy a week longer, they are likely out in the first round.

Ayton joining Trae in closing the Luka Regret Delta at least somewhat in these playoffs.

Yes. Also the clippers:

Since June 2, the Clippers have played every other day this entire month. View: https://twitter.com/Rachel__Nichols/status/1409003805392347137
Team is doing all of this without its best player.
PG (and the rest of the team is probably gassed as they have had to carry the load without kawhi

If the Hawks got someone a bit better than Reddish with the pick the following year, they probably would have won the trade.

Just turning on the game and it’s bothering me way more than it should that neither team is wearing white and the Bucks are blue,

I’m very distracted by how bad Marv is at identifying players. They’re wearing numbers, bro.

They all are Marcus Smart

So many of these Old broadcasters refuse to leave willingly, these dudes are overpaid and easily replaceable (guess that's why they don't leave).
